Combi oven manufacturer Rational has announced that Lincat will become a Rational deal partner.
This means that Lincat will cease to supply the Opus oven manufactured by Rational as an OEM partner, from the beginning of 2020.
Simon Lohse, MD, Rational UK, explained: “As we continue to deliver maximum customer benefit and to streamline our processes, as of 1 January 2020, Lincat will supply the Rational brand of SelfCookingCenter, CombiMaster Plus and VarioCookingCenter range of appliances.
“As with all our dealers, Lincat customers can now benefit from this change. We offer on-site training following the installation of their Rational appliance, and customer events, for example live cooking demonstrations and academies, popular with chefs who undertake regular training.”
Lohse concluded: “There is access to the accredited Rational Service Partner network, with the appliances having a factory supported 2-year warranty. The ConnectedCooking platform, allows users to connect their Rational appliances to a network, and monitor and control their appliances remotely, on a computer or mobile device.”
Lincat had traditionally supplied Rational combi ovens under the re-badged Opus brand. The Lincoln-based firm declined to comment on the new set-up.
